Coast Guard warns San Luis Pass visitors of drowning danger

HOUSTON - The Coast Guard is going to great lengths this Memorial Day to teach families about safety at a popular beach spot.

This weekend helicopter crews lowered a rescued swimmer at San Luis Pass to hand out flyers warning fishermen and swimmers of the dangerous conditions there.

Three people died there last Memorial Day weekend and five died during the entire summer.
